On October 22nd, the blog GotNews leaked to the public 11 never before seen undercover Planned Parenthood videos recorded by the Center for Medical Progress. These videos had not yet been released because the National Abortion Federation filed a lawsuit against the Center for Medical Progress. In this lawsuit, a California judge ordered the Center for Medical Progress not to release the footage until the lawsuit was completed. The lawsuit is ongoing. However, the Center for Medical Congress received a subpoena from Congress ordering them to turn over all footage – including the unreleased footage – so Congress can proceed with their investigation. The judge agreed, and the Center for Medical Progress turned over the videos to Congress. Days later, according to Breitbart News, a congressional staffer apparently leaked the videos, and they were placed on YouTube for all to see.
So what’s inside these 11 leaked videos?
And why does the National Abortion Federation so desperately want to keep them secret?
The footage is indisputably shocking. In addition to providing further evidence of Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practice of harvesting baby body parts, the disturbing and cruel nature of the abortion business is revealed – coming directly from the abortion providers themselves.
Here are the top 6 most unbelievable things said in the leaked videos… warning graphic language:
1. Harvesting Fetal Eyeballs
Lisa Harris, medical director for Planned Parenthood Mid-South Michigan, acknowledges receiving grant money in exchange for harvesting fetal eyeballs.

2. “It’s a person, it’s killing”
During the Planned Parenthood Michigan Workshop, Michigan abortionist Lisa Harris talks about the violence of abortion and admits,
“Women know what’s in there … they’re not stupid. … I actually think we should be less about denying the reality of those images (images of aborted children) and more about acknowledging that yeah that’s kind of true. Given that we see the fetus the same way and given that we might both agree that there’s violence in here, ask me why I come to work every day. Let’s just give them all the violence – it’s a person, it’s killing. Let’s just give them all that.”

3. “An eyeball just fell down into my lap…this abortion is going well”
At the National Abortion Federation’s annual meeting, the former executive director of the organization, Dr. Uta Landy, discusses the comments of other abortion providers and the “coping mechanisms” which they must use to handle with the gruesome nature of their business. She and the other abortionists in the audience laugh about these disturbing comments made by abortion providers,
“I don’t like saying I am dismembering a fetus…it makes me feel bad.”
“I find second trimester abortions grotesque.”
“I feel like any time you enter the body, it’s grotesque [laughter]. I just want to honor that we have different feelings about this – we need to be prepared.”
“My coping mechanism is to cope with the baby fetus – reverence with something that was alive and is now not.”
“An eyeball just fell down into my lap and that’s gross [laughter], and I say to myself, ‘This abortion is going well; it’s going safely.'” [laughter and applause]

4. “I was so consumed with fetal tissue I was ready…to have a bonfire”
As part of a panel of abortionists and clinic owners who are discussing how to dispose of aborted babies’ remains, Michigan abortion clinic owner, Renee Chelian, complains about how the volume of remains has become a growing inconvenience for her. She describes the appalling measures she has been willing to take in order to dispose of them, saying,
“I was so consumed with fetal tissue I was ready to drive to upper Michigan and have a bonfire and was just trying to figure out, you know, how I wouldn’t get stopped, or how far into the woods would I have to go to have this fire, that nobody was going to see me. I mean, it was the worst, I dreamt about how to dispose of fetal tissue” [laughter].
Ms. Chelian also reveals that she and many other clinics have used the garbage disposal to get rid of babies’ remains. She claims she hired a clinic worker to put 20 bottles of fetal remains through the garbage disposal, which according to her was a “completely legal option” that many other clinics were using.
Later on, Ms. Chelian jokes about needing to find a giant room to store all the ashes from the babies she would incinerate. She says,
“I want you to laugh about this. This is funny. I mean, it’s funny in a really sick way.”

5. “Liver is the big thing now”
A frighteningly enthusiastic abortionist discusses her clinics’ work in harvesting the body parts of aborted children. She exclaims, “Liver is the big thing now,” and admits that the clinic does not kill the babies until they are further developed in order to harvest bigger livers from them, along other body parts.

6. “Intact babies” for a financial incentive
A representative from Planned Parenthood New York says that they do abort intact babies at her clinic, and they would be happy to receive a financial incentive for harvesting their organs.

This footage, in addition to the previous 11 videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, displays a heartless disrespect for young, innocent life and the callous nature of the abortion business.
